Energy UK responds to the publication of Defra's Clean Air Strategy
Responding to the publication of Defra's Clean Air Strategy, Lawrence Slade, Chief Executive of Energy UK said:
“The energy sector has made huge progress in tackling air pollution by reducing harmful emissions. Low carbon generation also reached record levels in 2017 and we expect 2018 to be confirmed as the greenest year yet.
“We welcome the launch of the ambitious Clean Air Strategy by the Government today as, for the first time, it encompasses all sectors of the economy. We look forward to working with Government to improve air quality and go further and faster to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as we deliver a clean, green future energy system that meets consumers’ expectations.”
